Looking at details: far right side of picture looks like RR depot with bare (winter) tree. And, notice (left side of the picture's) shadows in door recess, the EAT sign & Coca-cola sign's long shadows on brick indicates sun's low angle to be winter, especially if the bldg faces the east. All of which puts the picture taken short time before noon. The architecture of the building looks much the same as Side Car, before boarding the windows. I assume that perhaps the standing woman is Blanch; and, wouldn't be interesting to discover whose leg it is of the person sitting on the bench? Maybe it was waitress on break before the next Super Chief's passengers arrived to fill the cafe!
